We, the Board of Trustees of school district No. 1, P.A. Lightfoot, Chairman, P.E. Morgan, Theo. Bradford, Clerk, do hereby certify that the above report is a true statement of the financial condition of school district No. 1.
P.A. Lightfoot, Chairman.

Theo. Bradlford, Clerk.

Sworn to and subscribed before me by P.A. Lightfoot this 29th day of June, 1889.
W.C. Holt, County Clerk.

It is wonderfully astonishing how full the Counmty is of dead beats. The man who subscribes for his county paper, receives it a year or two and then writes the editor - please discontinue sending your paper to my address," and says nothing about paying for the paper, is a dead beat of the lowest order. There are a number such, and we do honestly believe their names should be published and the public warned against them. The country editor earns every dollar he receives, and the people who take his paper ought to pay him promptly. He is of incalculable benefit and value to his county. Boom your home paper, that it may boom you.
